Since my last blog note, I have made major progress and have completed a number od outstanding activities. My nice new Head is in place complete with new seat/lid and all the internals and sanitary hoses. What a mission to get that working and connected. Not for the feint hearted.
Otherwise, all my old round windows have been remove anmd replaced with much more contempory dark perspex oblong windows. This has made a serious improvement to the overall appearance of the yacht and I am delighted with the end results. All of the internal window fittings have been cleaned and refitted. The entire effect is great and I can now see out of the windows, something I have never been able to do.
Ogther work completed recently include a new started button and wiring (yet another failure on the little engine control unit).
Otherwise not too much else done and very little sailing recently...No excuses, more sailing required...
